Getting my GTV6 back on the road (was: Timing Belt Change Problem)
EDIT: Changed thread title to reflect new purpose of thread
I had to replace my water pump this past weekend, which of course means replacing the timing belt. When I put everything back together, I apparently didn't get enough tension and ended up with the driver side cam off about half a tooth. I pulled that valve cover and adjusted the cam to line up with the reference mark, reinstalled the timing belt, and began turning the crankshaft. About half a rotation in, I realized there was slack in the belt in between the camshafts and the belt is off about a half tooth on the driver side again. I figured this was not a good thing and stopped.
At this point, nothing is set to TDC, and I don't have enough tension in the timing belt to feel confident about cranking things around to that point. I'm assuming I need to pull the other valve cover, get the cams and distributor lined up with TDC, but how do I get the crank back around without damaging anything?
